St-Ambroise Apricot Wheat Ale

12 oz single from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Light orange pour with a soapy, thinnish head that fades quickly. Despite this the head imparts some decent, sticky lace – better than I was expecting.
Nose is a fairly strong, summer fruit aroma. It has elements of apricot but also some serious peach tones as well. A bit strong and sickly.
The nose runs right into the taste and we find similar attributes there. It tastes a little like one of those highly flavored, fruit chewing gums! Artificial and quite strong. Not much else going on here.
A summer refresher for sure, but after 12 oz I’m done. The tastes (fruit) start to grind a little and it gets a touch tiring for the palate.
Where’s the wheat?? I dunno, it is distinct in its absence.
